‘Days of Wine & Roses’

done the Henry Mancini way,

accompanied a ‘Summer breeze’,

sung by the Isley Brothers today.

 

Earth, wind and fire, so vital,

as are, The Foundations, here.

Their, ‘Build me up buttercup’ hit,

always worthy of a ‘feel-good’ cheer.

 

And in his inimitable sing-along mode,

Max gave us Tulips from Amsterdam,

and much later, not to be outdone,

‘English Rose’ was sung by The Jam.

 

One of the joys early summer brings,

is this most classic and beautiful sight,

as one recalls Eddie Calvert playing,

‘Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White’.

 

So stunning when in full bloom, we have

‘Sugar Magnolia’ from the Grateful Dead.

Though short lived is this awesome sight,

and collecting petals is something we dread.

 

In vineyards throughout the world,

grapes grow sweetly upon the vine,

reminding us of Elkie Brookes,

and her vintage hit  ‘Lilac Wine’.

 

Scott Mackenzie gave us instructions

about wearing flowers in our hair,

if we were going to San Francisco;

but if we remember it, we weren’t there?

 

Edelweiss from The Sound of Music:

A timeless hit, and will be until…. 

Sung in his laid back fashion:

This last verse goes to, Mr Vince Hill.
